Jared Thomas Goff (born October 14, 1994) is an American football quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League (NFL).

The Los Angeles Rams are halfway through the biggest marker of the modern NFL era: QB Jared Goff ’ s rookie contract. If Goff has more performances like he did against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4 and continues to elevate his play overall as he has this year , it will be nearly impossible for

Jared Goff will soon see his rookie contract extended to 2020. Goff is one of a few 2016 first-round picks with a fairly open-and-shut fifth-year option decisions.

The Rams plan to pick up their two-time Pro Bowl quarterback’s fifth-year option, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times writes. This will tie Goff to a $22.783M 2020 salary.

Goff became extension-eligible this year, joining 2016 No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz in that regard. While the Eagles are hoping to extend Wentz this year, the Rams have not discussed a Goff re-up yet. Both teams have plenty of high-priced veterans, though the Rams have higher-profile deals on their payroll due to their 2018 extensions for Aaron Donald, Todd Gurley and Brandin Cooks.

Jared Goff is going to get paid a lot of money in the very near future.

The Giants decided to move forward and pick up the fifth - year option on offensive lineman Justin Pugh. The Rams will pay Austin over million after picking up the option . They may be more confident in what Austin has to offer when Jared Goff is throwing him the ball instead of Nick Foles or

“Not on my mind at all,” Goff said, via Klein, of an extension. “I know the deal and understand that I hired an agent for that reason, and things always work out. You continue to play well, it will work itself out.”

It is possible the Rams ($5.4M in cap space) could table Goff’s extension until after the 2019 season, but after ’19, Patrick Mahomes becomes eligible for a new deal. His next contract will raise the bar higher than Russell Wilson‘s did. While Goff has not accomplished what Mahomes has, from an individual perspective, he does have two Pro Bowl seasons and is only going into his age-25 campaign.

The 2016 No. 1 overall pick set new benchmarks with 4,688 passing yards and 32 touchdown throws last season, and the yardage was nearly a 1,000-yard spike from his 2017 figure. Sean McVay indicated recently he is pleased with Goff’s career track, despite the Los Angeles starter’s shaky Super Bowl outing.

Jared Dudley would be 'shocked' if Nets don't get meetings with Durant, Irving.
Jared Dudley, who will be a free agent this summer, said it’s “possible” that he returns to the Nets next season, as he tells Marc Stein of The New York Times (via the scribe’s latest newsletter). “I do think if it was up to Kenny and even Sean Marks, I think they would like me back,”Dudley said. “But they’ve got a Plan A, a Plan B and a Plan C — as they should. That doesn’t mean I can’t fit into that. But they’re close… “It’s just set up for one All-Star player to come in and take this team from a six seed to a two seed within one year. They have the infrastructure — good owner, good G.M., good coach. The practice facility is one of the best in the league.
